When Alex from Hays Salon came to visit…

Alex came to visit us yesterday from Hays Salon in Hull as part of our Aspirations Week. Alex talked to us about his childhood, schooling and how he came to be a successful hairdresser and business owner. The children loved his visit and were inspired to write many facts about Alex, his salon and his life.

A huge thank you to Alex from all of Year One for coming to visit us.

 

 

Let’s get measuring!

We have been so busy in Class 6 exploring different ways to measure length and height. The children have used standard and non-standard units to explore this. The children loved drawing around Mrs Langton, Mrs Hay and Mrs Stone to investigate how tall they were.

I wonder…can you measure your own height and write it in your homework book for an extra 10hps?

 

Our first gold award winners!

We have two children who achieved their gold award in the F2/KS1 reading challenge at the end of last week.  Today Oliver was presented with his gold award and selected a Marvel Superhero book as his prize.  Our second gold award winner was sadly poorly today but will hopefully  be back soon to collect their prize!

ATTENDANCE CHALLENGE RELAUNCH

We have relaunched our Attendance Challenge this half term rather than giving a £100 to the class with the best each term we are now giving £10 to the class with the best attendance each week (if there is a tie the matching winning classes will get £5). This has been a huge hit with the children.

So far class 3 and class 12 have won £10 to spend as they choose. Both classes are saving their money for a bigger reward. Watch the class blogs to see how they choose to spend their money!
